Cinema and comedy are now on the menu for visitors to a newly refurbished town hall in Bishop Auckland.
Following a major refurbishment last year, we have been gradually reopening Bishop Auckland Town Hall from May, in line with government guidance, including launching a new café and gallery.
This week sees the launch of its brand-new cinema programme, with screenings every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
People can now book tickets to a 4pm or 7.15pm showing of Dream Horse, starring Toni Collette, an inspiring true story of an unlikely racehorse bred by a small-town bartender. This is followed by The Father, starring Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Coleman, from Tuesday 13th July.
The venue has a range of coronavirus secure measures in place, including reduced capacities and ticketing systems, to ensure groups remain socially distanced.
Meanwhile, the much-loved comedy club, Hilarity Bites, returns to the town hall on Friday 16th July and features Roger Monkhouse, Aidan Hoatley, Jake Donaldson and host Dave Twentyman.
Tickets cost £8 in advance or £10 on the door.
